Default which buggy?

hey guys. new to this forum, but lurk around alot and am on quite a few others. had a question for you guys though.

ive been out of rc for a while, and just got back into it. i bought a hpi blitz and have upgraded it a fair amount. about to start racing it some.
also drug out the old tmaxx and 4tec, cleaned them up, cleaned out the motors and rebuilt them, serviced the shocks, etc and got them ready to sell because i want to get a buggy to race with some buddys as well.

my question is, what is going to be the best bang for the buck when it comes to buggys? i want to stay under about $375 or so.
i already have fuel, bottle, ignitor, charger, etc, so none of that is an issue.

basically looking for a rtr for the most part, but being new to buggies, im unsure what to get. ive been looking at a few on amain...
the Losi 810, OFNA hyper 7, OFNA ultra lx2, Kyosho Inferno Neo, OFNA Jammin X1 are the main contenders at the moment.

if i get a little more money and they are worth it, the hpi d8s is a contender as well, but right now, its looking to be in a range under $400.

what do you guys think is the best of those buggies?
having no experience, i do not know the downsides of each!

thanks in advance guys

You're going to want something you can get parts for also. More you invest in the beginning most likely will make things cheaper because upgrades, parts, etc

the more i search about almost all the buggies that i have listed, the more i get a little farther away from them. im wanting to stay cheap, but have something that will still be very competitive in races.... of course, alot of that has alot to do with driver, but from the reviews on alot of them, im unsure if i want to get one of those particular ones....
i have been looking hard at the hpi d8... with the same chassis and suspension as the hotbodies d8, it seems like it is nearly just a HB that they made rtr. also have been reading that all of the parts are interchangable between the two which seems to be promising.

however, i did just look at caster. the zx 1.5r looks great. especially for under $400.
do any of you guys have any reviews on it? i cant seem to find much on it really.
